The Inner North Community Foundation today announced community grants to 10 charitable organisations which focus on helping disadvantaged people in Melbourne’s inner north through the Foundation’s 2021 Pathways to Employment grants program, our annual grants round proudly supported by IntoWork Australia.
The Foundation aims to be adaptive to the evolving needs of the community. This year, our focus is on employment pathways for local people most disadvantaged by the impacts of Covid-19 in their access to employment. In particular, programs that deliver pre-vocational courses. This year 18 organisations applied, with a total ask of $265,683.
The Grants Assessment Panel this year consisted of Foundation directors Sylvia Admans (Chair), David Kennedy, and Julie Beckers who were joined by other volunteers with strong local connections Leeann Rayner and Grace Breen.
Panel members reviewed all applications and ranked each application against criteria and completed an online evaluation form for each application, which assisted with filtering the applications to identify the recommended grants.
The panel thanks applications for their work, and look forward to seeing how the 2021 recipients will turn our money into community value.
Full detail on grant recipients can be found in the 2021 Grants Booklet. And thanks again to IntoWork for their ongoing support and contributions!
